Day 241 - Another Winter Month Is Gone!
Friday, February 28, 2020      2 comments

I'm a little closer to my goal of not gaining any weight over the winter months. February turned out to be ok for me. I actually lost 3 pounds! I know, it's not much. But it's not a gain, so I'm very happy. I also made it to the gym 5 times each... Read more
Day 228 - Meh Week
Saturday, February 15, 2020      2 comments

So I thought I had a good week, until I got on the scale this morning and I didn't even lose an ounce. Bummer. I did have to stop taking my diuretic pills (blood calcium level is too high), so it's probable I'm hanging on to a pound or so of ext... Read more
Day 220 - Can't Complain About The Week
Friday, February 07, 2020      1 comments

The last 7 days have been pretty darn good. My mental state seems to have found a balance and I'm no longer in a downward spiral. It feels pretty good knowing I didn't get sucked down into the darkness. I have no idea why, except that I used eve... Read more
Day 212 - Hanging in
Thursday, January 30, 2020      1 comments

There seems to be a pause in the unraveling of my mental health - thankfully! I feel as though I've leveled out, for now. I'm still in a dip, but it's not getting worse. I've not lost a single pound this month. But, I've not gained any eith... Read more
Day 204 - Starting to unravel .... slowly.
Wednesday, January 22, 2020      4 comments

Well things are slowly starting to unravel. I guess it would be more accurate to say I'm starting to unravel. I'm not off the rails yet, but I'm slowly declining in mental health. I feel it coming, each day a little more. I'm trying to use all o... Read more
Day 185 - Still Working It
Friday, January 03, 2020      0 comments

Oh my! It's been a while since I last blogged. December just flew by! And I have good news to report. December was a good month. I was (still am) mentally stable, I lost 4lbs, and I went to the gym Mon-Fri (except on Christmas Day & Boxing Day .... Read more
Day 162 - On Track!
Tuesday, December 10, 2019      1 comments

My goal for this winter is to lose a pound a week and keep up with the gym. I'm doing both! I've lost a pound a week for the past two weeks and been to the gym 5 days a week. I'm feeling very good mentally and have high hopes for this winter. I'... Read more
Day 156 - Nov Recap
Wednesday, December 04, 2019      2 comments

November has been the least productive in terms of weight loss. I only lost 5.8lbs - but I'm still happy with the results. It took me some time to settle in to November. A few times I felt myself slipping out of a healthy mind set....teetering o... Read more
Day 149 - Time Is Passing Quickly
Wednesday, November 27, 2019      0 comments

Oh my goodness, time is flying by! I'm eating a little bit more than I was....but the scale keeps moving in the right direction - down! It's not moving quickly mind you, but it's still moving.... and that's all that is important. And my mood is ... Read more
Day 141 - Reached First Goal
Tuesday, November 19, 2019      2 comments

So I have finally hit the lowest weight I've ever reached when I've done SP in the past....before I gave up each time. I've lost 38lbs since June 25th. It's taken me a little longer than it did in the past, but I'm also older, and I've not been ... Read more
Day 137 - Ouch!
Thursday, November 14, 2019      2 comments

I've haven't been able to go to the gym since last Friday. I managed to throw my back out ... too much inclined treadmill, not enough stretching, and a week of lying on the beach on those horrible lounge beds. Serves me right for not paying clos... Read more
Day 130 - Where Do The Days Go?
Thursday, November 07, 2019      0 comments

I remember how the first few months of SP dragged on, and on. All I could think about was food and whether I was sticking with SP to the letter. But now time is passing by so quickly and I no longer spend my days thinking about food. I'm still f... Read more
Day 127 - A Little Holiday
Monday, November 04, 2019      1 comments

It's been 11 days (?) since my last blog ... I've been away on holiday! A wonderful girls week on the beach in the sun. I had a really great week and I didn't overdue it too much. The scale said I gained 2lbs, which could be true, or it might be... Read more
Day 116 - Blaaah
Thursday, October 24, 2019      1 comments

The gym was tough this morning. I usually do 65 minutes on the treadmill. My energy was fairly low (I'm fighting an infection and on antibiotics), so I told myself that I would do 20 minutes and then I could stop if I really needed to. After 20... Read more
Day 115 - New Milestone
Wednesday, October 23, 2019      4 comments

The longest I've ever stuck to SparkPeople is 113 days. I've just passed that mark and I'm still going strong! I'm still very involved, blog several times a week, track my food, and exercise daily. I've lost 35 pounds and I'm nearing a new lowes... Read more
